Mothers of Anxious/Ambivalent Infants: Maternal Characteristics and Child-Care Context.
Scher, Anat; Mayseless, Ofra
Child Development, v71 n6 p1629-39 Nov-Dec 2000
Explored the antecedents of the ambivalent attachment pattern in Israeli infants. Found that mothers of ambivalent infants showed lower education level, higher separation anxiety, and higher parenting stress than mothers of secure infants. Infants' perceived difficult temperament did not discriminate between the two groups. Longer maternal work hours and placement in group day care were associated with ambivalent attachment.
